I also do not play horror games.

Although Resident Evil is an exception. Or at least, it was until RE7 released. Refused to keep playing that one, though playing in VR may have had something to do with that lol... still it was an evil creepy game and I don't like that. Revelations series is fine. Games like Evil Within... heck no.

And DOOM was so good, just classic arcade gameplay. I had also written it off for a long time. But I did eventually buy it for Xbox One, and realized it wasn't anything like a horror game, or super scary or any of that. Even the gore was cheesy arcade type stuff. Or maybe I just got used to it a little, perhaps a combination of both.

But Wolfenstein is so story driven, and without all the demons and stuff. You're just fighting against Nazis in a future where they won and have advanced technology. I'd say on the gameplay basis, DOOM is more fun, but as a whole, accounting for the story and the narrative and the characters and just the whole package... Wolfenstein is just as good. And the gameplay isn't that far behind either. It's just a little bit slower and more like a traditional FPS. But the dual wielding and all that crazy stuff is just straight up awesome. And the gameplay, for a more traditional story driven FPS campaign, is basically flawless. It feels like a Nintendo game in that respect. Just flawless FPS gameplay. With a crazy number of difficulty modes, from super easy to super difficult. So anyone regardless of skill level can enjoy the game.

I'm quite certain that in Doom, you are the horror.

Ooh, this is it! This seals the deal! Time trial runs are IN for Funky Mode in DKC Tropical Freeze! I was worried they wouldn't let you do a time trial runs because the character has such a powerful moveset, but you can! There's even separate leaderboards and video replay uploads for Funky Kong time trial runs!

The hype is real

Doom actually did have that slight horror element to the early games before Doom 3, but it was overshadowed by the action. Doom 2016 definitely said "nope, **** that" and just made everything so kinetic, fast, and visceral though.

Haha, yes. I actually saw that referenced on the game's TV Tropes page.

@JaxonH Well, that's fair: as we've seen recently with Gal*Gun 2, reviews aren't always trustworthy. I trust you'll post your impressions of Wolfenstein 2 when it launches.

I'm surprised South Park bombed. I guess being a staggered release, full price, and not including Stick of Truth was a bridge too far for most people. I fully plan on picking it up at some point, but I'm currently saving my money for the hundred games I want that release later in the year.

@Ralizah
Ya, I expected lower sales being a staggered release and no Stick of Truth, but it still amuses me people are so finnicky with price for a game that is barely half a year old. Games routinely launch on PC 6-12 months after console, at full price, and people still buy them up.

I guess I expected it to have lower sales but I didn't expect it to be like... Splinter Cell Blacklist or Watch Dogs Wii U level of tanking. Especially given the game looks good and runs well and has all the DLC, and is the only portable version on the market.

But I suppose as more and more games release on Switch, people will start holding out for a Switch release in greater proportion. When the game released late last year, I don't think anyone expected it to come. But now we're seeing a lot of these games are actually coming. So maybe people will think twice about spending $60 on a game for other consoles, and instead just stashing that money in the drawer until the Switch version releases.

As for Wolf 2, I'll give it a fair assessment. I already know the game itself is excellent, so I guess it's just a question of whether it runs well. Realistically, I think if it can match DOOM, we'll be good.

Not only that, but even on its launch day, South Park only reached #40 on the Amazon Best Sellers List, right next to Mario Rabbids at #39, a game that has been out for nearly a year. The day after launch it dropped to #56, and the day after #75, and so on. For comparison, DKC Tropical Freeze is currently at #7 and it's not even out yet. And it's a port, and not the biggest profile game.

It severely tanked. Enough to worry me about future Ubisoft support.

Mario Rabbids is exclusive, so there's little doubt it would do far better.
I am surprised how badly South Park is selling, but it doesn't surprise me DKC would surpass South Park. They're both ports, but DKC was only released on a platform that failed hard, so not nearly as many people have played it. MK8D and Bayonetta have already shown how people want those Wii U games on a better system and DKC isn't any different.

Mario Rabbids is exclusive, but again it's been on the market since August. It was only used as reference for context. South Park, on its highest selling day at launch, couldn't even outperform a game that's been out for 9 months, not even for one single day. DKC obviously has a lot more appeal, but again, I used as reference because it's not even out yet. It's still weeks away from launch and even so, is still considerably outselling SP on launch day just from preorders.

I don't see a reason to buy a Ubisoft game for full price when they drop their prices in couple of months. I'm sure there are some other people who think the same way. You can get Mario + Rabbids, Rayman Legends and Just Dance 2018 for 20€. South Park will soon join that group. I'll wait and buy it then.

I programmed a simple tool that copies all Switch screenshots from an SD card and places them to folders according to the game:

I think the Switch versions of Dark Souls Remastered and Wolfenstein 2 would've had the best chance of being successful if they released before E3. Smash hype will kill their potential unless somehow Solaire is a playable fighter for example.

I think Dark Souls has a better chance of breaking through, just because it looks so good and runs well on Switch. And I've seen a lot of excitement for that game on a portable system. And people can pick it up for $31.99 with GCU, which is basically half-price. And it's getting an amiibo to help push it.

Honestly though, I kinda feel like Doom Guy and BJ Blazkowicz from Wolfenstein are better suited to be in Smash, just because they hearken back to the SNES/N64 era, and Switch has been a revival of these IP for Nintendo fans. I really do feel like they are worthy of admission. Despite Dark Souls being really hype and all, i'm not sure if it's worthy of being admitted into Smash.

Btw, this is one of my favorite things about Wolfenstein: choosing your difficulty. I shamelessly admit to embracing the nook. I was never that good at FPS, but I do enjoy em with motion and a difficulty more on line with my skill level

I was kinda leaning towards the Dragonborn for Smash meself, but Doomguy could work.

Oh. Wait. That would taint the “purity“. /s

I was just using Solaire as an example. As we've seen many times before, Smash helped franchises get big. From Melee leading to Nintendo localizing Fire Emblem all the way to such an interest in the Bayonetta franchise after she appeared as Smash 4 DLC that Nintendo enabled Platinum to make Bayonetta 3.

So Solaire in Smash would help Dark Souls Remastered sales, Doomguy in Smash would help DOOM (and DOOM 2 if it exists + comes to Switch) sales, etc.

I mean, after Cloud and Bayonetta and especially Snake, the possibilities of newcomer third-parties are more varied than what we think. That said, they all have a running theme: either they're the faces of very, very popular franchises (Cloud and Snake) or they're mostly aligned with Nintendo (Mega Man and Bayonetta).

But if anyone unironically brings up Goku, you'll be blocked. (just kidding, but seriously Goku does not need to be in Smash)

I really hope there’s some good stuff planned for second half 2018 but I’m keeping my e3 expectations low, they straight up said they will talk about 2019 after e3.
